Hope someone is there to meet them.
Just like a free-form painting Kathryn: excellent
Kathryn: Thanks, Chris. Free-form is right smile

Nice one Kathryn...
Kathryn: Thanks, Richa. I wonder what it is you find nice about it, though.

When I feel this kind of synchronicity, Kathryn, I am definitely FLYING!

(As an aside, my sister has 2 blogs: one is named Synchronizing and the other Flying!)
Kathryn: Flying in synch...isn't that such a great feeling?

Like an abstract painting ... It's just amazing ...
Kathryn: Thanks, Ann. Maybe a little too abstract, but what the heck. It speaks to me.
It is interesting to compare this with the NigelClack picture speeding swans of a couple of days ago. It is not a case of which is better but just how two people take a similar subject and produce two very individual pictures.

Me? I like them both.
Kathryn: Nigel's swans are poetry. His photograph is so well done, I sat for an hour looking at it and listening to music,

Nice to know you like them both.

New camera I note, very impressive ;o) An interesting image, helped by the white horizontal line. Almost imples a mirror image - slightly out of synch.
Kathryn: Mike, I love my D50, but yes we have a new camera. I really have not dabbled with it much.

Or moving into synch.

...they look alike
they fly alike
they feel alike
they made from the same "cloth", it seems
they move through the air in the same direction,
what is the destination point?
will they ever cross the line?
delicately-out-of-synch souls...
Kathryn: Flying in parallels
Until one
Reaches ever so slightly over the line
Setting into motion
a Synchronicity of Souls
They look to be out of control and unconcerned ... Just another day ... It seems? richard
Kathryn: Yeah kinda like exercise day at the old folks home, right, R? lol
Nice shot Kathryn. I like the wings veil effect
Kathryn: Thanks. Richard. Nice to know you like it. The effect of a slowed shutterspeed.

R they gulls?
R they gals?
R they going, or just cruising for pleasure?
Centering them on the image raises questions, Kathryn...I guess that is what you intended.
Kathryn: What questions does it raise. Ray? Now there is a question worth raising.
Spooky and ghostly picture.
Kathryn: I always wonder what it is you find spooky about images like these. Color me a Curious Yellow.

Two new spirits flitted through my view.
A moment before they departed
continuing the circle
on and on ...

Excellent. You moved me to a few clumsy words. And a likey by order.
Kathryn: Louis, I am smiling so big right now, because with your few words. you've communicated so much about yourself--more than ever before. Please feel free to use my blog any time do so. My response:

Two old souls connect
Over flitting spirits
With clumsy words
That speak their truths

You have me flying with this shot Kathryn. Nicely donesmile
Kathryn: Be sure you are wearing your seatbelt and have an oxygen with you, Tracy!

I like the effect you have captured here, Kathryn
Kathryn: Thanks, Chad.
Fantastic sense of movement. Even though I know what it is, I love the abstract quality. These just get better and better, Kathryn. (:o)
Kathryn: Thanks, Roz. I so appreciate you looking and leaving a comment that tells me how you feel about the image or more to the point, how the image makes you feel.

As far as getting better and better, I really can't say because I try not to compare them. I just look at them and focus on that one image and what I feel from it.

I love your tittle, this is a fabulous picture, you master this as the best, I know you don't like me saying that be I am repeating it, I love it.
Kathryn: Astrid, I'll make you a deal. You can say it as many times as you want and I will graciously thank you for saying it and not harp on you about saying it, if right after you say it the very next time, you will also jot down a few words that describe what it is in the image that makes you feel connected to it beyond the technical aspects of the image.

While my frail ego loves flattery, my scientific training and mind keeps me in check and wants to know the reasons beyond the flattery to understand its source.

By Ginnie whom I met in Amsterdam last weekend I learnt know a new word: "soulmates", soulmates may be happy, more than lucky.
Do you know the wonderful poem of Bertolt Brecht, Die Liebenden? It fits your poetical pic!

Sieh jene Kraniche in gro├čem Bogen!
Die Wolken, welche ihnen beigegeben
Zogen mit ihnen schon, als sie entflogen
Aus einem Leben in ein andres Leben
In gleicher H├Âhe und mit gleicher Eile
Scheinen sie alle beide nur daneben.
Da├č so der Kranich mit der Wolke teile
Den sch├Ânen Himmel, den sie kurz befliegen
Da├č also keines l├Ąnger hier verweile
Und keines andres sehe als das Wiegen
Des andern in dem Wind, den beide sp├╝ren
Die jetzt im Fluge beieinander liegen
So mag der Wind sie in das Nichts entf├╝hren
Wenn sie nur nicht vergehen und sich bleiben
Solange kann sie beide nichts ber├╝hren
Solange kann man sie von jedem Ort vertreiben
Wo Regen drohen oder Sch├╝sse schallen.
So unter Sonn und Monds wenig verschiedenen Scheiben
Fliegen sie hin, einander ganz verfallen.
Wohin ihr? Nirgendhin. Von wem davon? Von allen.
Ihr fragt, wie lange sind sie schon beisammen? Seit kurzem.
Und wann werden sie sich trennen? Bald.
So scheint die Liebe Liebenden ein Halt.
Kathryn: I did not know Bertolt Brecht's "Die Liebenden," but is just so delicate and so deep. Thank you so much for posting it for me.

If my photograph reminds you of the beautiful ideas and words of Brecht, then I am flattered.

Is the German word for soulmates der Seelenfreund? Is der Seelenfreund used in the same way in German as it is in English?

Wow! This is mystical photography. lovely
Kathryn: Thanks, Eillie.
Kathryn this is ace, were you moving in the car again or panning? The combination of the different blurs really works LIKEY it.
Kathryn: Following the birds with the camera and using an slower shutterspeed.

Nice to know you Likey it. I've another I think I will post on Wednesday. Similar yet different.

their wings seem to be melting away from them and yet they aren't dissipating into nothingness. i like the allusion to soul synchronicity too... tempts me to momentarily believe in soulmates. and the moment was longer than most. thank you for sharing a lovely photograph and a few wisps of thought - they make my day brighter smile
Kathryn: Surely you jest, Terry. A poet who does not believe in soulmates? If those wisps have brightened your day, perhaps they deserve a few more moments of thought ;-)
Splendid, symbolizing the way loving people get along with each other!
stunning...goodness you're good.
